I’ve been a medical transcriptionist since 1976. It’s a skilled profession, and it used to be a good, middle-class job. But now, due to offshoring of American jobs, profits in the healthcare industry continue to skyrocket, but people like me, who produce the medical records doctors depend on for quality health care, are seeing our pay continue to drop because they can get away with paying offshore workers so little. My pay is now at a pre-1978 level, which, adjusted for 2012, is below minimum wage. Sending American jobs offshore, especially when so many here are out of work or underemployed, is morally reprehensible, and should be stopped.
